The Drugging Of Our Children ist eine US-amerikanische Dokumentation des US-Amerikaners Gary Null, die sich kritisch mit der medikamentösen Behandlung von Kindern und Jugendlichen auseinandersetzt.

Handlung

In the absence of any objective medical tests to determine who has ADD or ADHD, doctors rely in part on standardized assessments and the impressions of teachers and guardians while the they administer leave little room for other causes or aggravating factors, such as diet, or environment.

Hence, diagnosing a child or adolescent with ADD or ADHD is often the outcome, although no organic basis for either disease has yet to be clinically proven. Psychiatrists may then prescribe psychotropic drugs for the children without first without making it clear to parents that these medications can have severe side-effects including insomnia, loss of appetite, headaches, psychotic symptoms and even potentially fatal adverse reactions, such as cardiac arrhythmia.

And yet, despite these dangers, many school systems actually work with government agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who refuse with the prospect of having their children taken from the home unless they cooperate.[1]

Kritik

Regisseur Gary Null betreibt einen Vertrieb für Alternativpräparate auch zur Behandlung schwerer Erkrankungen.[2] Wegen seiner polarisierenden und polemisierenden Kritik an der Pharmaindustrie wurde Null vorgeworfen, die in seinen Werken publizierten Darstellungen seien durch eigene Profitinteressen motiviert.
